A New, Iron (the Deceptively Pretty Color of Blue) Curtain?  

Under pressure from the U.S. government, for Colin Powell's speech before the United Nations on Wednesday, Feb. 5, the Picasso masterpiece Guernica was covered by a blue curtain. Buzzflash tells you all about it. Guernica has company. She joins our lady statue Justice, draped by a blue curtain at the behest of the not your average prude U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft. I suppose the Bushites would love to drape a blue curtain over the entire country, and hoodwink us all.
